9:02 am
brian had some trash in his hand. in a thoughtless moment, walked owe over and threw the trash and the ring into the trash can. >> the look of horror in my wife's eyes, my heart sunk. >> don't you go through the trash and get it back out? >> you would, but brian had taken the trash out to the dumpster. >> oh, my goodness. >> you jump in the dumpster and go through the dumpster trash. >> he would have dumpster-defense, but the trash man had already come. >> oh! >> they missed the dumpster by ten minutes. >> this is like something from a sitcom or something. >> and guess where brian went next? >> the dump. >> the dump. >> i was lifting chairs out of the way, broken glass, other sanitary items i don't want to get into. but it was -- horrific to say the least. >> he said he puked a little because of the smell. but he eventually came upon the
9:03 am
ring. >> how do you find it in a trash dump? if osama bin laden hadn't have been captured, i would have sent this guy. >> i would have worked close to this giant trash site in pompano beach, florida. it's enormous and it stinks like nothing you've ever smelled in your life. the fact that he did that, he's apretty good husband. >> he's my absolute hero. >> he shouldn't have thrown it out in the first place, mindless man. >> first of all, i'm not in charge of the ring any more. >> it's a dramatic animal rescue in africa and "right this minute," we've got the pictures. we saw the story on national geographic.com. this is in zambia, and an african elephant and its baby believed to be two and a half years old, were in the kapani lago lagoon. which this time of year, is an area that's dry and sticky. what we're see something a baby and a mother duck in this mud. the baby elephant got stuck
9:04 am
first. the mom went in to get him out of there and they both struggled and struggled and then got themselves stuck. wildlife officials and conservationists debated on whether to save these two animals, because it was a natural occurrence. they eventually decided they are going to try to save these elephants. they came to the rescue, it was a two-hour battle for these guys against heat, dehydration, the mud was rapidly drying. which made it even more difficult. now even while the people were trying to save the baby, the mother was still fighting the people off with her trunk because she was trying to protect the baby. you see they've got a rope tied around the baby. and they would pull the baby out, they would get him to safety and woe run back to the mom. the third time was a charm. they got the baby elephant out and in this picture you see that's apparently his herd cousin. who was calling out to him. but saving mom wasn't so easy. they had to bring in a tractor. when they brought the tractor in, the mother actually wrapped
9:05 am
her trunk around the rope and started pulling the tractor. she managed to pull that heavy tractor there three feet. two hours later, they were able to get this mother elephant out of the mud. and as you can see, she still had enough strength to gallop to run out of there, back to the herd. >> i'm so glad they chose to save them. the strange thing about this video is the fight is between an officer and just a regular man. the man is chris irwin, the officer is lieutenant david hudson. this is taking place in little rock, arkansas. now, according to reports, what happened was chris irwin was trying to enter a restaurant where a private party was taking place. and he was asked to leave. so lieutenant david hudson, he was an off-duty police officer, kind of moonlighting as a security guard, got involved in the situation. there are four different punches to this guy's face, he's got him by the back of the head. here comes the first punch to the face. here comes the second punch to the face.
9:06 am
and the third and the fourth. >> geez. >> you can hear people in the background saying stop, stop. >> the cops are trying to figure out if this officer was in the right or in the wrong. >> does this guy swing back? >> it doesn't seem to be that he's fighting back. he seems to be complying. >> what was said? was irwin resisting? >> that's what is under investigation. people who were here around the camera as it was being shot say no. >> he had to have been doing something really wrong. >> stop, stop! >> we have chris irwin, the man who was hit, we have his attorney, keith hall, with us via skype "right this minute." what do you believe happened? >> i believe that mr. irwin went into a restaurant that was open for business. >> what actually led them to this confrontation? >> he was inside. he was on the dance floor with his girlfriend. the officer comes up to him and says, hey, you need to leave. he closes his tab. when he gets out on the curb, he
9:07 am
wants to ask the officer why was he asked to leave. and that's what you see. he was never arrested. >> what kind of injuries did your client sustain from this incident? >> his eye swelled shut. he had to get three stitches in his cheek. >> what the police have said in little rock, arkansas, is this -- the video that was released and shown of the arrest that night is only a brief fraction of the entire event that happened. rather than jump to conclusion and assumption of what is right and wrong, we should all allow the investigation into the entire incident to take place. >> stop! stop! >> hey! this video, i am not kidding, makes me say -- what are you bleeping thinking? this is what looks to be at a mall. and you see a woman hunched over at what seems to be one of those
9:08 am
vending machines. where you put in the money and it's one of those stuffed animals. >> the crane thing? >> the crane. >> there's no chance to get it. >> what this woman is trying to do is push her daughter -- through the opening of the vending machine, so she can go in there and grab the money attached to the prizes. >> oh, my god, she's in there. >> she's inside. >> how do we know that the kid didn't go up in there by herself and get stuck? >> if you see part of the video, it looks like she's pushing the kid in. >> somehow does she think she's going to get the kid out now? is she going to have to play the game and get the crane. >> i don't want to believe she pushed her kid up in there. i want to believe that the kid went in there and she's trying to get her out. >> you can clear le see her pushing. >> you can think the mom would
9:09 am
be frantic to call the mall security officials to get the kid out. >> sorry, nick. >> i'm going go for she was not -- i don't know. >> you're attempt for being a softie in this particular case? fail. >> i've never seen you attempt to be a softie and this is where you choose? >> i feel like being nice on a monday morning. when we see romantic comedies set in new york, oftentimes we see a carriage ride. it's synonymous with romance in new york. well some new yorkers want to get rid of them. and this is the reason why. >> awkward, just -- oh, oh no. >> luke is one of the horses that pulls one of the carriages and he collapsed just over a week ago. in new york city. apparently he tripped on his harness. >> aw. i hate to see this. >> when i lived in new york, i used to see oftentimes groups of
9:10 am
people shouting and almost protesting these guys who give the carriage rides. >> as you can see in the last video, a better image of luke the horse, they were eventually able to get him upright. >> i want to know if the horse is going to continue working right now. >> aspca, when they went in and they checked on luke he was cleared to work. >> i don't have a problem with the carriage horses, as long as they're being treated properly. as long as they're not being overworked for you know, for real long hours in a day. and as long as they're stables are clean and they're being fed. i've always wondered, these animals weren't made to stomp on pavement, on cement streets. >> we have to remember, horses were what we used, our chief mode of transportation before we had cars. and there were cobblestone streets back then and horses pulling carriages. >> horses are such regal, majestic animals. and it breaks your heart to see this.
9:11 am
>> look at that on top of the cath us. cath "us." >> it is an animal and we're going to show you how it gets down and on top of that bar, a dog, drinking. >> leave your damn dog at home. take your girlfriend out for the night. leave the damn dog alone. >> a story about the night life. the heart on the x-ray isn't where it's supposed to be. how to move it. >> pothole saves the day. >> one little girl's road to recovery on "right this minute."

9:36 am
minute" via skype. your blog or your website is gaining popularity. why do you think that is? >> i think because people like death. i think whether or not they admit it or whether or not they're aware of it, you know, it's something that's going to happen to all of us. so it's kind of a general interest. it's the most general interest there is. in the world. >> what is, in your opinion, the strangest question you were ever asked? >> i've got some pretty good ones recently. i had one girl ask me if it's possible to make jewelry out of arteries and tendons. while you're cremating, if you put popcorn in body, will it pop? >> what? >> they're not crazy. because i think the people asking them are absolutely sincere and i think they're good questions. >> tell us the story about how your mom realized that you -- tended towards the macabre? >> when i was young i used to come up with really elaborate
9:37 am
scenarios of how i was going to die. mother, if i went to the edge of the cliff and my little foot slip and i sort of plummeted off the edge, would you be sad? and my mother was like, oh, yes i would be sad. don't do that. >> so she wasn't surprised by your career choice? >> no, no one was surprised by my career choice. >> how are other morticians reacting to this? >> it's been really positive so far. there's one guy who has written me hateful messages. mortuary science and humor do not mix and never the twain shall meet. but other than that guy, everyone has been incredibly positive. we know by now how the siri feature works on our iphones. you ask siri a question, she helps you out. now a few guys have figured out a way to get siri to read your mind. >> ooh! >> it filters down through this wire here and the signal to the
9:38 am
presaged digital pattern. >> a lot of technical mum bo jumbo. but at the end the guy thinks to call somebody. i think i'm going to call beth and the phone will call beth. >> what? >> hey. >> no way. >> he calls the goo that's sitting right next to him. his friend. just by thinking, call graham. >> it's not doing it. >> come on. >> think harder, come on. >> calling josh. >> real? this is real? >> i can't tell. they could just, they could have rigged up their phone. >> this just a video online right now. but pretty freaky. if it is real. >> but this just seems like there's not enough technology involved here. >> right. >> exactly. i think it's possible and i agree with you guys that just a couple of things stuck to your forehead -- what the heck do i know.
9:39 am
>> zach, our tech expert is here to explain this. how the heck does this thing work. >> this brain wave is connected to this command. you'll record something that you're thinking. this brain wave means call someone. >> they train it before. they train this system before it's a react in a certain way. >> right. so can you put this thing on and it won't just read every thought that you have. it's that it's preprogrammed to recognize some thoughts. >> god, i want it. >> to be real. i think. >> calling john. now this is what we call a small apartment. a 450 square-foot studio. >> but this guy fits four roomses into this one-room space. we'll tell you how he did it. and art makes itself. the secret behind these little and art makes itself. the secret behind these little creations.

9:42 am
a guy named michael dickie and a team of scientists at north carolina state university have figured out how to make origami, if you will, using nothing but infrared light. you see the black lines there. the thicker the line, the more energy it absorbs, so the sharper the angle of the fold so that you can make different designs. as soon as they put the infrared light along the materials, you see it fold up exactly where the
9:43 am
lines are drawn. >> i know that black absorbs light, kind of like a black hole. but it takes the fun out of origami, that's the one thing i remember about second grade, was folding everything and trying to make a crane. >> they're saying the cool thing about this technology is that it can be used with current printer technologies that are available to everybody. >> steven, you lived in new york. >> yes. >> what do we know about new york? real estate is high. >> yes, you pay a lot and get just a little. >> we found this story on fair company.com. eric bought a 450 square-foot studio for $235,000. >> woo, that's not very big. >> that's what the parkt looked like before. >> he hired a group of architects from the architecture firm, normal projects to maximize this space. it created this cabinet that housed everything you need. for four full-sized rooms. >> perhaps the most interesting feature is the bed. >> whoa. >> it's a murphy bed. >> murphy bed.

9:45 am
